Help to Manage Weight
Scientists found that the metabolism of people that frequently eat nuts (such as almonds) is accelerated, which, in turn, reduces their risk to gain weight or might even lead to its loss.
Clinical trials demonstrated that people who were on an energy-restricted diet and consumed soaked almonds for breakfast showed improved cholesterol profiles and lost some weight. In addition, participants of the study showed reduced fat and water masses and cut down their waistlines.
Researchers have also found that moderate consumption of nuts on a daily basis improves the body energy expenditure, which is also associated with a reduction in weight.
